After the temporary I-90 closure due to the dump of snow in the early morning, headed out to Gold Creek around 10:30. There was so much fresh snow that I put on my snowshoes right where the forest road starts instead of doing the usual walking on hard pack.
Followed the freshly cut trail around the ponds, stopping to bask in the sun for a bit. Snow lightly fell on and off. Got off the trail and cut my own trail to get up some sweat. Ran into only a few people around the ponds. Sun came out in force so when I headed home the roadways were dry and clear. Beautiful snowscapes to view on the drive home from the morning snowfall.
